Wow. That is a terrific lesson! thanks so much Vicki for sharing it with us.


Hi Vickie - my camera has a BW setting. How accurate do you find this compared to multiple filters? I have generally just used the camera setting but now I am wondering if that's best...

Vicki - this was a fantastic tutorial. Your photos and explanations really hit their mark. You have a special knack for clearly expressing yourself and this post is a perfect example. Thank you for having taken the time to share this valuable information. I thoroughly enjoyed your post.


This is very interesting, Vicki. Thanks. I've only ever used grayscale. Didn't even know about the other ones.


Wonderful suggestions, can't wait to try this out. Thanks.

I wish more quilters paid attention to this. Don't forget too to mention that value is relative; saturation (chroma) of the hue is important; and temperature can also affect our perception of what stands out and what doesn't. Backing away from the piece and squinting helps you see things as a whole-contrast dissolves down to just some basic stuff-light, med, and dark. The best two tools I have are my eyes-squinting is everything and I also use my ruby plastic card when I am out in the field.

Great post-I hope people use the info.

Wow, very cool. I've never spent much time figuring out all the different ways to convert, the grayscale was the first one I found and i've not done any more! Isn't it neat how close in value the green and orange are???
